Fate continues to test me. It looked at first like I’d found some good luck. I’ve been given a return ticket to London for tomorrow. A friend had been intending to travel for a conference but now won’t be using it. That means I can get to London on the train within two hours. The Cartoon Museum is a good but walkable stride from Euston and the Ralph Steadman exhibition is still on. However, with sickness in the family, I don’t think I can use it. I’ll have another day to decide but it’s hard to see my being able to go. My bad luck continues to defy logic or reason.
I’ve also never known internet traffic to dry up at is did yesterday, continuing into this morning. It almost makes me almost thankful that I’ve got nothing exciting to post except the previous old cartoon. Perhaps Google have changed their search algorithm or Sparks fans have just decided that they’ve had enough cartoon strips. Already today, traffic is about a quarter of what I’d usually expect. Is it the warm weather? Are the perverts on holiday?
Well, no, that can’t be true. Yesterday I had a visitor looking for ‘English armpit sex stories’ which baffled me. Why English? Are our armpits sexier than the armpits of other nations? The searcher was from the Philippines but the visitors I want to talk always come from the Philippines. It’s Fate again laughing at me as I again have to figure out how to spell ‘Philippines’. Note to self: spend an hour memorising the spelling of Philippines. Come on. How difficult can it be? Philip and two p’s.
No job hunt news. With sickness in the house, I’m too distracted and busy. However, I have started work on something for a competition I’ve decided to enter. I’ve never won a thing in my life so I don’t expect to win anything now but it’s good to have some focus when everything else is dragging me here and there.
